A Gathering of Creatives

Dwell Hillcrest hosted one of the fabulous Gathering of Creatives events this month and it did not disappoint. Their space is filled with perfect textures in all the right places with loads of natural light streaming in from every angle. It was the ideal place to host a gathering focused on design. Abigail Miller (http://abiartcreative.com/), Kendra Miller (http://www.kendradawnphoto.com/), and Shyla Yoder (https://loveshyla.com/) are the women behind these gatherings and they are creative masterminds. Take some time to check them out. Red Mug Coffee kept us all warm and alert with their incredible coffee as we listened to fellow women business owners share their stories. Women like Claude from The Chris & Claude Co. and Rae from Daughters of Promise Magazine. (If I'm being honest here, I was SUPER intimidated/star-struck, to the point where I couldn't even make eye contact...I'm ridiculous. Ha!) There was also space for learning all kinds of things, from lettering techniques to budgeting for our businesses...we covered a lot of ground. Basically, it was a weekend filled with beauty. Beautiful people, beautiful food, beautiful spaces, beautiful textures, beauty everywhere.

The Weckesser Family | Lifestyle

Over the past several months I've been able to spend some time working with Brad and Emily (owners of The Oyster's Pearl) and I have to say, they're amazing. When you walk into their home, you immediately understand why their business is a success. They understand design and style and all things aesthetic. If you haven't already, check them out here: http://www.theoysterspearldesign.com/. Their sweet family just grew by one adorable little girl and I was honored to get a sneak peak into their everyday. There's something special about lifestyle sessions because it's REAL LIFE. No fluff, minimal posing, just realness. I love it.

Shyla | Floral design

Shyla.  I've only truly spent time with her twice but I can tell you so much about her from our limited time together.  She opens up her heart and let's you right in. She has such a tender, beautiful spirit about her that you can't help but love.  She is also a talented florist and writer. (check out her blog! http://loveshyla.com/blog)  I had the honor of spending time with her this week while she put together a gorgeous fall arrangement.  I hope you are in awe by her amazingness as much as I am.
